Allene and Jack were two of the fine people I met at Atonement Lutheran when I first moved to Laurens right out of college. Allene and my mom were the same age, so it was nice to have a "mom" close by. How God blessed that little church with such wonderful and caring people. Visiting there throughout the last 30+ years since leaving Laurens, I could always count on seeing Allene in the choir. She always welcomed me and cared to ask about my family. When attending the church's 70th anniversary a few years ago, there was Allene, smiling as always! I imagine her Jack has a big, happy smile now. I will miss her and thank God that we shared part of our life's journey. May God comfort you all with memories of her love for you.
